Vote 'til you drop?

So, WalMart has recently backed
Rights of voters, but showed little tact,
In supply and demand,
When they asked to expand
Them by adding a Shopping Rights Act*.

*We understand this proposed legislation purports to increase voter access and turnout by mandating that all polling locations be moved to the nearest WalMart. Plus an additional 15% off at the register for those voting a straight Republican ticket!

I don't know if Sam Walton is the oe who "recently backed rights of voters". He's dead. But WalMart is a mess, isn't it. I think it's got to be reined in; it's creating all kinds of problems for our world economy. I'm glad I never bought stock so I don't have to complicit in the evil they do.

You were indeed correct, Annie. It was actually the current CEO, Lee Scott, whose name would not have brought instant recogniton in my limerick. I should have done my research on Mr. Walton, however.

You will note that I have revised the limerick now, so as not to speak ill of the dead.
